    This is a different clone than the one I posted last year. I have it hanging on a 14GA wire suspended from the ceiling overhead. I like this method of growing for leafless species because it really shows the plants' growth habits off, and this is particularly true of Microcoelia which tends to grab onto nothing. So this plant receives quite a lot of light, higher temps, high humidity and strong air movement. Not quite in bloom yet but I like to watch these as they develop. The size of a watermelon with too many spikes to count.

    Thanks. I find these really respond to the humidity. I noticed this past year that the root tips never really stopped growing so it tends to get large rather quickly. I have another one that has a single growth center but this one has at least three or four, each of which has thrown spikes. When they're happy these are fun to grow.

    I think it was you who told me the other clone came from Cal-Orchid. Is this one from there too? Have you ever tried crossing the two?

    That is stunning! My plant is much smaller in an 8" basket. Maybe I should just let him hang in the breeze.
